Neil Leifer’s Iconic Sports Illustrated Photographs Coming to WAX

Your chance to own a piece of sports history has arrived.

Most successful photographers hang their hats on one or two iconic photos in their careers. However, Neil Leifer is celebrated for capturing numerous moments across the worlds of sports, politics, foreign affairs and entertainment.

His body of work includes unforgettable shots covering the 16 Olympic Games, 12 Super Bowls, 15 Kentucky Derbies, 4 FIFA World Cups, innumerable World Series games and other world-changing events. The results of his passion are stunning shots of Muhammad Ali, Presidents John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan, and world leaders and legendary musicians Sir Paul McCartney, Bowie and so many more.
